Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd proposes to conduct a 3D seismic survey in exploration permits WA-496-P, WA-491-P and WA-439-P.
The Dirk Adventure Bart 3D Marine Seismic Survey (DAB 3D MSS) will take place within an operational area of approximately 27,159 km2 that is situated within three separate permit areas, WA-496-P, WA-439-P and WA-491-P. The operational area is located entirely within Commonwealth waters, 128 km northwest of Ningaloo Reef and 110 km northwest of the Commonwealth Ningaloo Marine Park boundary.
Water depths in the operational area range from approximately 900 m to 4,250 m.
The survey is proposed to commence in Q4, 2014 and will take approximately 90 days to complete. The actual time frame will depend on vessel scheduling and the weather conditions during the survey.
